Celebrate Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month, a time dedicated to celebrating and recognizing the achievements of women throughout history. This annual observance is an opportunity to honor the remarkable women who have made significant contributions to society and paved the way for future generations of women to follow.

Women’s History Month provides an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the contributions of women throughout history, from famous figures to ordinary women who have made a difference in their communities. Women have made significant contributions to every aspect of society, from politics and science to art and literature.

Throughout history, women have faced many challenges and obstacles, including discrimination, inequality, and lack of representation. Women have fought for their rights and have made significant progress toward gender equality, but there is still work to be done. Women continue to face challenges in the workplace, in politics, and in society as a whole.

Women’s History Month is a time to celebrate the progress that has been made and to recognize the work that still needs to be done to achieve true gender equality. It’s a time to honor the women who have come before us and to inspire the next generation of women to continue to fight for their rights and make their mark on history.

Some notable women who have made significant contributions to history include:

  • Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person to win two Nobel Prizes in different fields.
  • Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States and a champion of women’s rights and gender equality.
  • Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate.
  • Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist who escaped slavery and helped hundreds of other slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad.

These are just a few of the many incredible women who have made a difference in the world. Women’s History Month is a time to recognize and celebrate the contributions of women throughout history and to inspire the next generation of women to continue to make their mark on the world.

LYLA Ranks #8 – Fast Company’s ‘World’s Most Innovative Companies’ 2022!

We are so excited to announce that we ranked #8 on Fast Company’s Annual List of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022!

This year’s list honors businesses that are making the biggest impact on their industries and culture as a whole—ultimately thriving in today’s ever-changing world. These companies are creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century. In addition to the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, 528 organizations are recognized across 52 categories.

LYLA emerged during the coronavirus pandemic to get ahead of employee burnout and help with their mental health in a way that traditional Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) have not been able to.

“When the pandemic hit, it was one of those ‘aha’ moments,” said Marsha McVicker, Founder and CEO of LYLA. “We found the Employee Assistance Programs our clients had in place were not meeting the needs of their employees, and we were in a position to provide them with real solutions.”

LYLA now outperforms traditional EAPs by 300%. By combining artificial intelligence with an empathetic human touch, LYLA offers personalized solutions to today’s most pressing personal needs. From finding the perfect nanny to getting tires repaired during an emergency and stepping in when tragedy hits, LYLA never leaves the side of those it serves.

Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses across the globe and industries. The World’s Most Innovative Companies is their signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

“The world’s most innovative companies play an essential role in addressing the most pressing issues facing society, whether they’re fighting climate change by spurring decarbonization efforts, ameliorating the strain on supply chains, or helping us reconnect with one another over shared passions,” said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky.

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2022) is available online here, as well as in-app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning March 15. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.

Join us in celebrating this huge accomplishment!  We’d like to thank the entire LYLA team, and all of our users, whose hard work and dedication has made this honor possible.

Hey there, it’s LYLA!

It all started when one of our customers said in passing, “Hey, wouldn’t it be nice if we could do so-and-so?” And we thought to ourselves, “Wow, that really WOULD be nice.” But instead of just doing that one thing, we decided to see what OTHER things might be nice. So we started on a new journey of self-discovery. We brought in a UX (user experience) designer (Hi, Juliana!) to start interviewing customers from all walks of life to get their suggestions on what would make not just the app, but our entire program better. The feedback you gave us was amazing!

We began the development process but knew that all the awesome changes that were coming needed a fresh new design, especially after the year we’ve all had. That’s when our UI (user interface) designer came in (Hi, Joy!). She created three very distinct vibes and surveyed both current customers and people who’d never even heard of us to see what resonated the most. She took the pieces from each style to create one master design. If you open the LYLA app right now, you’ll be holding it in your hands!

Along the way, our marketing team (Hi, Tom and Pete and Jen!) guided us toward a completely new brand, an acronym for Love Your Life App: LYLA. It’s a new name for a new app and a new beginning. But we kept all the good stuff: the people you’ve come to know and love. Our technology isn’t Artificial Intelligence; it’s powered by real-life humans who solve problems in a variety of ways and will make sure your tasks are completed more meaningfully than any AI ever could.

We’re excited to show you what LYLA can do, and we’re even more excited about the enhancements that will continue to come your way throughout the summer. We had so many great ideas that they couldn’t all be crammed into one update, so you’ll want to be sure to check back often to see what’s new. And if you’re interested in becoming one of our interview or test subjects, please let us know.

Welcome to summer! Welcome to more free time and a shorter to-do list! Welcome to LYLA.
